Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North: Morning take: Sometimes starting over can invigorate a coach, and Cincinnati is definitely beginning a new era. The Bengals have some young talent to at least make things interesting.
Morning take: Credit Delhomme for showing leadership. But don't be surprised if he's not on Cleveland's roster this fall. McCoy's the starter and Seneca Wallace received an extension, making Delhomme a possible third-stringer.
Morning take: Cornerback Ike Taylor is the most important for the Steelers. Offensive lineman Willie Colon and defensive lineman Chris Hoke also would be a nice veterans to keep for leadership and depth.
Morning take: That's a pretty wise move for a rookie. Taylor, a sixth-round pick, is in line to compete for a backup job. The Ravens will likely sign a veteran, so Taylor needs to hit the ground running.
